At Amazon, the Last Mile Technology organization is responsible for envisioning and developing cutting edge initiatives in delivering packages to our customers as fast and as cost effectively as possible. We utilize multiple delivery methods, business models and delivery station processes to achieve these goals. In 2019, we delivered 3.5 billion packages worldwide and continue to operate at increasingly large scale.

The Dispatch Automation team automates the dispatch process at Last Mile delivery stations, coordinating multiple planning and execution systems, such as route creation, package containerization and route to driver assignment. In addition to orchestrating the entire process, we own several individual planning systems, including route to driver assignment and route departure planning. The team's innovation focus is on continuous dispatch, launching orchestration in Sub-Same-Day-Delivery stations and Amazon Robotics stations recently launched.

As a Senior SDE on the Dispatch Automation team, you will utilize the latest AWS technologies to author automation tools and workflows, work with Principal Engineers to design fault-tolerant performant software, guide junior developers during implementation, and help set the team's business and technical strategy.
